    IDC Design Symposium: Value of Design Thinking


    Design Symposium website launching soon!

    Mark your calendars and join us in Toronto in Fall 2018 as we host one of North America’s most uplifting, inspiring and expansive educational conferences showcasing the true value of design.

    Stake your place at the table as we bring together thought leaders, subject experts and game changers from the wider design, business and media community to highlight the crucial role of design in shaping a productive, healthy and inclusive society.

    Over three thought-provoking days, we’re aiming to expand your horizons, as well as your network and skills base through a program of in-depth education, expert panel discussions, guided design tours, awards galas and breakfasts, emerging professionals programs and provocative conference keynotes.
